Our University in the Webometrics Ranking

In the latest Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, Lublin University of Technology ranks among the 13% of the most recognizable universities in the world and among the 5% of the Polish universities.

Nearly 12 thousand universities from over 200 countries were classified in the ranking. LUT ranks 1563rd in the world and 24th in the country (out of 384 universities) and it is the highest score among the Lublin universities.

The Ranking primarily takes into account the presence and recognition of universities on the Internet but it is not a ranking of university websites and it is not intended to judge their appearance, usefulness or their popularity as measured by the number of visits or visitors.

The aim of the Webometrics Ranking is to increase the presence of academic and research institutions on the Internet, to support Open Access projects as well as to encourage universities and scientists to make their presence on the Internet reflect the actual state of what they do.

The Webometrics Ranking is based on four criteria: visibility, excellence, openness and presence.

The Webometrics Ranking is produced by the Cybermetrics Lab, a unit of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), the main public research body in Spain. The ranking started in 2004 and is updated every January and July.
